wanting to paint inner fairing Big Blue Pearl

I have my bike getting ready for paint. Inner fairing and lowers. Will my guy be able to get real close to the Big Blue color, or should I go gloss black? I understand that he most likely can't do the pearl part. If anyone has a color that worked for them I would love to know

Do a search for Paul's Painted Inner Fairings. He will match your color. He buys all his paint from H-D source. He will be at Biketoberfest in three weeks. He will also ship.

I've seen BBP matched perfectly many many times by "outside" painters........

Personally I'd give him a side cover so he has fine thing to match

BBP is one of the best matching of the PPG special order formulas,

A set of Topshop viper bags I did with matching RGC stripes,

A lot, the base color is just black but it seems for the right sparkle effect you have to put a fair amount of the pearl effect layer on or it looks to dark.

This is what the BBP pearl looks like in the can as it comes from PPG, when shot over black it turns into that wild sparkly blue flake.

I like to have a side cover or other OEM painted part while I'm shooting so I have a good reference
